ARTISTIC GYMNASTICS FOR KIDS, TWEENS & TEENS

Dynamite offers year-round Artistic gymnastics classes for girls (although boys are always welcome). We invite gymnasts to go as far as their hard work and dedication can take them. Class students should inform their instructors of any ambitions as their instructors can better guide them towards fulfilling their gymnastics goals. At Dynamite, we allow class students with team-appropriate skills to move into our competitive programs. Just at Dynamite to learn a few skills and have tons of fun? We can help you with that too! 

Snaps (5 - 7)

Snaps is the first year of Artistic gymnastics instruction and we provide a curriculum that teaches all the fundamentals. Dynamite has intermediate bars and low beams to make the transition from preschool to Snaps seamless. Students graduate to bouncier trampolines, and use tumble track, blocks and mats to learn cartwheels, handstands, rolls and bridges. Using bars to develop strength, beam to build balance, floor for coordination, and trampoline for air awareness,Snaps is the first step towards building a strong gymnastics foundation. This class is typically for girls only. 

Perfect for: Girls who want to learn basic skills (i.e., cartwheels, handstands) or progress to competition. 

Level: Beginner/Intermediate

Age range: 5 - 7

Length of class: 60 minutes

Student/Instructor ratio: 8:1

Cost: $120/month or $35/trial


rockets (7 - 10)

Rockets starts at age 7, although gymnasts should only graduate to Rockets if they are comfortable on the high bars and beams, and they want to add an extra 30 minutes (they are welcome to stay in Snaps until they are ready). In Rockets, gymnasts will move at their own pace as they learn the fundamentals that prepare them for higher-level skills. Because gymnastics is a progressive sport, gymnasts of differing levels can be taught side by side as they work on different skills. Once they achieve the basics, they can move onto more advanced skills. Rockets who are interested in graduating to Advanced Rockets, Pre-Xcel or JO should consult with their instructor. 

 

 

Perfect for: Girls who want to learn basic skills (i.e., cartwheels, handstands) or progress to advanced levels. 

Level: Beginner/Intermediate

Age range: 7 - 10

In Rockets (10+) class, students learn basic gymnastics skills on Artistic gymnastics apparatuses--vault, bars, beam and spring floor. In addition to artistic equipment, Rockets use trampolines and the Tumbltrak to learn tumbling progressions. Once Rockets learn foundational and intermediate skills, they can ask permission to try Advanced Rockets. Gymnasts who have aspirations to compete should inform their instructor who will know what skills to perfect in preparation for advancement.
